Benny Solis To Ride In AMA Pro Daytona Sportbike Division In 2012
RidersDiscount.com Vesrah Suzuki recently announced that Benny Solis has joined their racing team. He has already tested the team's 2011 racing bike, the GSX-R 600, and the rider is excited to race for victory in Florida next year.
"As soon as I got on the Suzuki I had a really good feel for it, I was able to push and I really liked the bike," said Solis of his first test ride on the team's bike. "We worked on getting the set up closer to where I liked it and although we didn't have it 100 percent, I was still able to beat my race pace lap times from this last season, so that was a plus on my side. I'm excited to get more time on the bike because I know I can go much faster and I can get it closer to where I really like the feel."
Solis was, until recently, riding a Honda in the AMA Pro SuperSport division. He also won the 2008 Red Bull AMA U.S. Rookies Cup and took three championships in the 2010 WERA competition.
